Building Great Spaces, Running Civic Organizations, and Influencing Government - Colin Day
Today, I’m super excited to have Colin Day on the Podcast. Colin is a Project Manager for the Institute for the Built Environment. As a PM, Colin’s focus is on civic resilience as well as district and city scale sustainability solutions. He is a graduate of the Master’s in Landscape Architecture program at Colorado State University, with a focus on redesigning environmentally compromised landscape for educational and community uses. In this conversation we discuss urban development, how entrepreneurs can help in urban development, how to influence government and civic entities, how to grow and market a community advocacy organization, and we also take a brief foray into the challenges surrounding affordable housing. If you’ve ever wondered how designers think about the urban environment and how you (as an entrepreneur or marketer) might play a part, this podcast is for you.

This is Tyler, and you are listening to the Analytive Podcast. ************************************* About Analytive You’ve likely worked with marketing agencies in the past.

Forecasting, Understanding Human Nature, and Living Well - Eric Gemelli
Today on the podcast we have Eric Gemelli. For those of you unfamiliar with him, let me give you a brief bio. Mr. Gemelli started working in finance in 1987 and has served in many positions in the insurance and mortgage banking industries. He has traded commodities for a living and raised venture capital. These experiences gave him the ability to write a syndicated finance column with millions of readers, including his column predicting the market crash that correlated to the September 11 crash. While living in Chicago, home to the S&P pits at the Mercantile Exchange, Gemelli had an office in a bank, across the hall from one of the country’s top S&P traders. His mentor was rich, old and bored and enjoyed having an eager student to pass on a lifetime of experience and knowledge. Gemelli used the patterns taught him by his mentor to predict the market crash that corresponded to September 11th. Mr Gemelli just released a new book, Velocity Money Machine, which is available on Amazon. In it, he breaks down the strategies he uses to make a living as a trader. In this podcast, we discuss trading, investing, forecasting, whether you can really predict the future using math, and take a Segway into wisdom and living well. You can find more about Eric at Learn2Invest.co. ********************************************************* About Analytive You’ve likely worked with marketing agencies in the past.

What Bicycle Riding Taught Me About Marketing and Life 🚲 🚲 - Episode 6
I was about five years old when I got my first bike. It was a Christmas present. Like all good Christmas presents, it required a bit of assembly. I remember my dad putting it together and then putting on the training wheels. I loved that bike. There were thee houses on our block, and I used to ride it back and forth for hours at a time. Once I started to understand how to ride, the day came where Dad took off the training wheels. This led to a few crashes and skinned knees, but as I got the hang of it, I learned one of the most important lessons in my life. I just didn’t know it at the time. When you’re riding a bike, it’s not difficult to stay upright as long as you’re moving forward. But staying upright after you stop is almost impossible.

How Not to Be Boring 😴😴 - Episode 5 - The Analytive Podcast
I hold in my hand a corporate marketers dream piece. It’s a check in the box. It’s enough for someone to say “Look what we created!” and then forget about it the next moment. In a word, it’s boring. But here’s the truth: boring doesn’t attract attention. Boring doesn’t sell. Boring doesn’t make a difference. Boring doesn’t change the world. Boring doesn’t drive engagement. Boring doesn’t build the future. Boring isn’t even read. It’s skimmed, then dropped. Do you have to be over-the-top crazy? No. Do you have to be offensive? No. But do you have to be boring? Absolutely not. In this podcast, we break out five ways you can avoid creating boring content. It's easier than you think.
